What are Nicotine Salts?
Why vaping on nic salts? The term “Nicotine salt” aka ‘’nic salt’’ just refers to the scientific definition. It doesn’t mean it’s made with the salt we put on our steaks. A salt is any chemical compound formed from the reaction of an acid with a base. Many of you are for sure thinking : Acid? What the heck?! Actually, nicotine salts exist in tobacco, So if you have ever smoked a cigarette you have already experienced nicotine salt.
Nicotine Vs. Nicotine Salt
Almost all e-juices on the market use Liquid Nicotine. This is directly extracted from tobacco. In this process, all the impurities found in tobacco are stripped away. Leaving you with nicotine in its pure form, by many is called freebase nicotine. Freebase nicotine has a high alkalinity its PH level
is around 7-8. Many of you maybe don’t know that the PH level is directly correlated with the throat hit you experience while inhaling your e-vapor. The higher the PH the harsher is the throat hit.
Nicotine salt is created instead by using specific acids to liquid nicotine(freebase nicotine). By doing this, the level of PH lowers corresponding with a lower irritation in your throat. This means you can vape higher nicotine salt percentage without that rough throat hit.
Advantages of SaltNic
The major advantage of nic salt is the smoother hit it gives. The second advantage is the nicotine blood absorption rate. It is scientifically proven that nicotine salt vape juice will be assures faster by our bloodstream then traditional nicotine. That means Nic salts provide almost the same blood absorption rate of an actual cigarette. This is a huge benefit for the ones who are trying to quit smoking because nic salt e-liquid is mimicking the effects of that cancer stick you're trying to get rid of. Therefore, if you are struggling with switching completely to vaping because you are not getting the same effect of a cigarette then you might want to give to a nicotine salt e-juice a chance.
Vaping Nicotine Salts
When vaping saltnic it is important to understand that the devices used to vape nicotine salt e-liquid will differ depending on the nicotine strength you choose.

If you like blowing huge clouds and experience flavor with your high powered sub ohm kit than we recommend you to lower the nic level, somewhere between 6mg-10mg. Higher nicotine e liquids used in high powered e cigarettes will likely be too much, so it is strongly advised to not vape high strength nicotine salts ejuice in high powered, sub ohm kit.
